The only newspaper that covered the Senate hearing on environmental justice was The Washington Afro American. The Washington Post rarely to never covers environmental justice issues, unless a black reporter steps forward to write an article. The environmental reporters for The Post avoid writing about environmental justice like it is the plague. But one would think The Post would cover an environmental justice hearing sponsored by Senator Hillary Clinton. Still no coverage.
Although The Washington Times covers issues in black Washington better than The Washington Post, there wasn't a story about the hearing in that newspaper either. Nothing in the New York Times, USA Today or any of the other mainstream print outlets. (The Afro American Newspapers, "Environmental Racism Takes Senate Stage")
